In my post on Northbank, I promised to return to Trafalgar Square for a special tree. Here is a slice from the very top of that tree.
In the run-up to Christmas, choirs from churches, charities and community groups will be singing Christmas carols beside the tree. If you’re near Trafalgar Square on Saturday 19th December, look out for my friends from Crown Court Church of Scotland, who will be singing and raising money for Christian Aid.
This week the square is also home to a giant menorah, to celebrate the Jewish festival of lights, Chanukah. The menorah will be on display until 14th December, with one light being lit each day.
The building behind the menorah in the next image is the National Gallery.
The square will be busy tonight. There is a special celebration at the menorah today, with the Mayor of London, live music and, best of all, free doughnuts. For more details, click here to see the Mayor of London’s website, or look for the hashtag
